The Federalist Society for Law and Public Policy Studies is a group of conservatives and libertarians interested in the current state of the legal order. It is founded on the principles that the state exists to preserve freedom, that the separation of governmental powers is central to our Constitution, and that it is emphatically the province and duty of the judiciary to say what the law is, not what it should be. This podcast feed contains audio files of Federalist Society panel discussions, debates, addresses, and other events related to law and public policy.

    Criminal Law & Procedure Practice Group

    In this sequel to our panel last year on “The Limits of Federal Criminal Law,” we ask a distinguished panel to discuss how enforcement policy is evolving under Attorney General Jeff Sessions. Is the Yates Memo targeting individual employees of a corporation still operative? Do the speeches of the new Attorney General give any insights into future enforcement tendencies?

    This event was held on June 13, 2017, at the National Press Club in Washington, DC.

    Featuring:

    • Hon. Alice Fisher, Partner, Latham & Watkins LLP 
    • Matthew S. Miner, Partner, Morgan, Lewis & Bockius LLP
    • Hon. George J. Terwilliger III, Partner, McGuireWoods LLP

    The State of Antitrust Enforcement 6-9-2017

    Corporations, Securities & Antitrust Practice Group

    Antitrust policy during much of the Obama Administration was a continuation of the Bush Administration’s minimal involvement in the market. However, at the end of President Obama’s term, there was a significant pivot to investigations and blocks of high profile mergers such as Halliburton-Baker Hughes, Comcast-Time Warner Cable, Staples-Office Depot, Sysco-US Foods, and Aetna-Humana and Anthem-Cigna. How will or should the new Administration analyze proposed mergers, including certain high profile deals like Walgreens-Rite Aid, AT&T-Time Warner, Inc., and DraftKings-FanDuel?

    This lively luncheon panel discussion covered these topics and the anticipated future of antitrust enforcement. This event was held on June 9, 2017, at the National Press Club in Washington, DC.

    Speakers: 

    • Albert A. Foer, Founder and Senior Fellow, American Antitrust Institute
    • Prof. Geoffrey A. Manne, Executive Director, International Center for Law & Economics
    • Hon. Joshua D. Wright, Professor of Law, George Mason University School of Law
    • Moderator: Hon. Ronald A. Cass, Dean Emeritus, Boston University School of Law and President, Cass & Associates, PC
